Google And JBL Reveal A Hybrid Soundbar With Android TV

Google And JBL Reveal A Hybrid Soundbar With Android TV

Google I/O 2018 is just around the corner, so brace yourself for a slew of Google news.

A late 2018 ship date also gives time for Google to woo app developers to support the new "Watch Next" feature, which is the main reason why Nvidia hasn't updates its Shield TV to Oreo. This year, too, the countdown has begun to the tech giant's 3-day annual fest that kicks off on Tuesday, and concludes on Thursday. With Amazon selling its own screen-enabled Echoes in Show and Spot, a Google-made Home with a screen would look great in our kitchens. Android TV had "tremendous traction over the last year" from Asian cable and satellite operators seeking it for set-top boxes, said Google product management director Shalini Govil-Pai.

Additionally, new media search results are being added to Android Auto. Let us know in the comments!

That said, Google has struggled to extend Android's dominance into other areas over the last four years, technology and financial analysts said.

The company is promising long-term support for production devices. It can even be used to control your smart home devices or play music.

Back in December of 2016, Google launched a developer preview of Android Things, its focused effort on the Internet of Things and making even more Android-powered devices.

For those not familiar with Android Things and the IoT world, just know that this platform "does the heavy lifting with certified hardware, rich developer APIs, and secure managed software updates using Google's back-end infrastructure", to help device makers focus on building unbelievable products, not the other stuff.

So we'll see what happens here.

The company is also putting in efforts to utilize artificial intelligence in other Alphabet business too like the Waymo self-driving vehicle so we should expect to hear more about AI-based products.

Android TV and Android Auto could also get mentions this week as both products are due for updates. The rumor also says that it has a full TV interface with a remote and it would be great to see that it's not just another Chromecast dongle. Future Volvo cars, therefore, shall offer drivers up-to-date information as well as predictive services.

Drivers will be able to take advantage of many core Android features including voice-controlled Google Assistant, Google Maps and Play Store apps. Hopefully, this I/O will be marked as the launch of this feature.

But Android Auto is not an operating system.
